Wherever you are now, we all are in the midst of tremendous global change and have been feeling this collectively as well as individually. How to not let any of the anarchy or any form of chaos affect our inner homeostasis?
First of all, it always helps to ask the question WHY? Not why this or that is happening but why it is important to stay grounded no matter what? There is an unconscious tendency in people to find connection through sharing the pain, worries and fears. This way we find a common ground which gives us a sense of unity and therefore safety - I am not alone in this. This is a healthy foundation to move on and grow from it, unless we allow ourselves to be swept down the spiral by getting involved in unnecessary drama. Try to limit the mass and social media influence on you.
“The quieter you become, the more you can hear.” ― Ram Dass.
Secondly, it is our responsibility and in our ability to self-regulate. Every day brings a choice: to practice stress or to practice peace. When we are emotionally stable, we are at better mental and physical capacity to do the best in our life and to support others. When we are centered, we don't react but are able to respond in better ways.
Thirdly, don’t find excuses to delay self-care and personal growth till better times. Always remember that the outer world follows the inner world. A small daily practice will bring a lasting change. Gratitude is the most powerful way to shift your perspective and raise your vibrations.
Fourthly, if you want the world to be a better place - be the change, start with yourself, practice and share peace and joy.
“I am not against fighting for freedom for your nation, but don’t give it a priority. The priority should be for your spiritual freedom, which cannot be taken away.” - Osho (Freedom: The courage to be yourself).
And lastly, always have faith that Life is Pure (Pura Vida). “A certain darkness is needed to see the stars.” – Osho. The truth is everyone faces darkness at some point in their lives. It’s about what you do with it. You can either can self-destruct or see a silver lining and grow from it. And this choice is your supreme power!
My wish for you is whatever goals you set for 2022 always follow your bliss, not your blisters!
Pura Vida from my Heart to Yours!
